Nearly three weeks after releasing the Dev Hynes-helmed music video for “Hyperspace,” Beck decides to serve up a brand new project. Fittingly-titled Paisley Park Sessions, Beck’s new EP features his own take on the Prince records “When Doves Cry,” “Kiss,” “1999,” “Raspberry Beret,” “Where It’s At” and “Up All Night,” with all of the aforementioned tracks performed as part of a three-track medley. As the EP’s title reveals, the songs that make up Paisley Park Sessions were recorded at Prince’s legendary Paisley Park Studios; in a brief statement posted to Instagram, Beck bills his latest project as “a nearly impromptu jam recorded on hallowed ground.” Notably, Beck also chose to document and film the creation of Paisley Park Sessions for a brief documentary, which gives viewers an exclusive, rare look inside the renowned recording space.

“A lot of my albums, there aren’t many guests,” Beck recently shared with NME, opening up about his new, more open approach to collaborating with other artists on his projects. “I have memories about albums I’ve made that are just really lonely. I’m in there 12 hours a day just trudging through this production, so it’s a great joy to bring people I know into my music. I’m hoping to be able to do this more often.”
